2012-06-15 CBP Begins Public Outreach to Update Broker Regulations
CBP is planning several public Webinars during the summer of 2012 to solicit comment and input on all facets of the broker regulations (19 CFR Part 111). This is part of CBP’s Role of the Broker Initiative, which looks to meaningfully transform the relationship between the customs broker and CBP. One key element of this initiative is to modernize the broker’s role by overhauling regulations. The goal is to update the broker regulations to better reflect modern and efficient trade practices, and encourage brokers to be force multipliers for CBP’s trade facilitation efforts.
